Avoid Summer Damage With Climate-Controlled Storage, Wilmington, North Carolina

Whether you’re storing family heirlooms or electronics, your valuables matter; that’s why climate-controlled storage is essential. A combination of temperature control, humidity control, and security will allow you to rest assured that your possessions are safe all year. Here are a few key ways climate-controlled units are invaluable when you’re storing your belongings.

The Benefits of Climate-Controlled Storage

climate-controlled storageOne of the biggest benefits of climate-controlled storage is that it protects your valuables from high humidity and harsh temperatures. Extreme temperature fluctuations and moisture levels can damage items like electronics, fine art, and antiques. However, the temperature inside a controlled unit is adjusted based on the season and weather, so your belongings will always be secure in stable conditions.

Additionally, climate-controlled storage units are equipped with insulated walls, which provide an extra barrier to keep dirt, dust, and debris away from your valuables. This barrier also provides better protection against flooding, tracked-in dirt, and pests. Whether you’re storing your items for a week, a year, or longer, you can trust that your items will be in the same condition you originally stored them in.

Dangers of Humidity

Humidity isn’t just inconvenient — it can also ruin your stored items.

  • Warping: Humid conditions can cause book pages to bend and warp, which can result in irreparable damage to your library, photo albums, and family records.

  • Cracking: Changes in temperature and moisture levels can cause wood to expand and crack, which is bad news for your antiques and other stored furniture.

  • Mold & Mildew: If moisture builds up in your storage unit, you’re inviting the growth of mold and mildew — especially if you’re storing items like clothing, wood, leather, and photos.

You don’t have to let your belongings gather dust in your garage or create clutter in your home, and you shouldn’t have to gamble with your valuables in a storage facility. Instead, store your possessions in a climate-controlled storage unit for peace of mind.
